Self Assessment Drives Growth

Every organization in the secular world conduct assessment on all employees, it encourages individual self assessment, and promote continuous learning to drive self and process improvement for the sustainability of the organization.

I want to let you know that the Scriptures also encourages believers to assess themselves to drive repentance, growth and maturity as a witness to our inward transformation, and outward representation of our divinity.


“Brothers and Sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive rich welcome into the eternal kingdom” 2 Peter 1:10-11

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5

This piece is culled from The Magic of Thinking Big

Friends, when was the last time you examined yourself? When was the last time you conducted an evaluation of yourself to identify faith gap, unbelief, doubt, and outright sin in your life? It is what we know that is lacking in us that we will talk to our Father in heaven about, and get help with.

I know many of us see ourselves as perfect and has no room for improvement. We are just great the way we are eh? Yes! You are wrong if you think and act like this. The very wise know that what they do not know is so much more than what they already know, hence they listen more, ask questions, research, and observe more keenly, they learn, and take action to apply every knowledge gained.

You and I need to do a check up of ourselves friends, not to be critical of ourselves, but to identify where we need to grow, and repentance becomes easy when we realize our mistakes and shortcomings. Self assessment truly drives growth if you think about it.

Do the necessary checkup! Then talk to our helper about it!
Shalom!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

He Loves You First

The devil created nothing except chaos. He created no being!. The creator is the Most High God, the Almighty, All, Knowing, All Seeing God. And He created YOU

Therefore, in reaching out to the world, I must let them know of this fact. The Almighty created everyone, and there’s NONE too far lost that cannot be saved. You belong to God already. Psalms 24:1 He is willing to bring you home where love reside.

I mean, until you and I, as Christians stand and speak from this premise, the love of God cannot be shed abroad in our hearts. Romans 5:5.

I know God loves me despite and inspite of me, and he loves me before I acknowledged Him as Lord. God made me fall in love with Him. I love Him now because He first loved me. 1 John 4:19

Like a parent loves their babies, cares, and nurture them, so God has been caring for you.

I need someone to know that you are unconditionally loved by God. You only need to acknowledge His love right now.

Friends, acknowledge God’s love for you. That situation could have been worst you know?

God’s love saved you, made a way of escape, healed you, encouraged you, gave you hope and is preserving you this moment, making room for you to acknowledge Him. Don’t let this moment pass by.

Speak to Jesus from your heart. Ask Him to help you to see Him as He is. Romans 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith, your believe in Jesus that you are saved.

As many as received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in His name; John 1:12

Praise God

Rebuilding Through The Word of God

Society needs to be rebuilt from God’s Word.

Excerpt from Dr Jonathan Murphy’s Sermon on
Rebuilding Through The Word – Nehemiah 8:1-12

Here we are taken back to basics. As believers we need the essentials from the book of life, the word of God to survive and to rebuild.

6 Essentials To Survive As A Believer

1. Believers must gather as one before God.  Our lives, families, society, and our world can only be rebuilt from the truth of God’s word. We must not forsake our gathering together like some do – Hebrews 10:25


2. Another essential is the need for God’s pulpit preaching Pastor. An expository preaching Pastor is required to rebuild the work of God in his people. The body of Christ need a slow cooking Pastor, cooked in the truth of the word of God

3. Believers must assemble and call for the book of the law of God. It means we should come expectant and demand to hear the truth from the book of God. We need to hold our Pastors accountable to bring forth the word of God. Enough of the merchandising, fables, and doctrines of man

4. As individuals, we must be attentive to the word of God. It is your responsibility to plough the soil of your heart to prepare to receive God’s truth. Your preparation will yield insight and transformation

5. You must then apply the word of God you have received in your life, which is your ministry. You must be doers of what you have heard from the word, only then can you be the Bible that the world will read and come to believe Christ is in your midst

Come out from amongst them and be ye separate

In order to effect a positive change in the world believers have to swim against the current – the political correctness, Idolatry, and all sort in our society demanding our conformity. We cannot be like the world, to change the world. We are in the world but not of the world.

You Will Shine Like Stars

When you have the assurance of salvation in your inward being, the word of God says such a person will shine like stars.

Just an encounter with the person of the Holy Spirit changes our countenance because God’s glory rubs off on us!

Read the account of the Samaritan woman in John 4. When she went back into the city to testify, she was glowing.

You cannot meet with the person of the Holy Spirit and remain the same! You must radiate the radiance of God’s glory! His beauty will permeate your being.

Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Amen

You Are Loved! Believe This!

Loved by God!

I don’t know why it is so difficult for you to believe God loves you! God loves everyone! He does! He loves the Democrats, the Republicans, the Muslims, the queers, the unbelievers, everybody! God loves the WORLD! Everyone in it!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 1For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

When you and I accept this, when the WORLD accept this love, it would be easier to live a life worthy of this love. When you love someone, you do things to make that person happy, not hurt the person! So also is with the Lord. You will desire to please Him in all your ways!
Hebrews 3:12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

If the world believes that he or she is loved, this is where transformation begins! What you come to believe God does not like drops off of you when you genuinely love the Lord. You will cry out to your maker to help you get rid of what you now know is filth and lies!

Will you accept God’s love today? While it is today, as you hear God’s voice reading this, harden not your heart!

Hebrews 3:15 As has just been said:“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.

Whoever believes in Christ Jesus is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Do not reject the love of God. Open up your heart to faith!

Shalom!

He Lives In Hearts!

God’s dwelling place is our hearts

There is a deep yearning in the heart of every being to be one with its maker. We all crave the presence of God, and there is no better place to feel God than in His Word. Dwell in it, and live by it!

His presence is in wherever you are this moment, for God is not in that place or those places, but within you! God dwells not in that made by human hands, God dwells in our hearts. Will you allow the Lord a place in your heart today? Open up your heart and let the Lord come in. Behold He knocks, if anyone opens up for Him, He will come in and sup with him.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Acts 7:48“However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: 49 “‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? 50 Has not my hand made all these things?’

Acts 17:24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 

The question then is, is God in your heart?. Many a time we get it wrong, we want to build a house for God, do stuffs for God, while all God want is to be in us and walk with us!

If you are born again, God lives in you by His Holy Spirit. Therefore, worship Him! Worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness. Acknowledge His presence! Give Him some praise! Hallelujah!

If you do not have a relationship with God or understand what you just read. Please close your eyes and say, Lord Jesus, forgive me my sins, come into my heart and abide with me. Help me Lord to know you and have your way in my heart! It’s that simple! The Holy Spirit will help you. Trust Him!

Thank you Lord for making our hearts your dwelling place. We love you!

Shalom!

Lies and Stupidity Is Not A Norm! Truth and Wisdom Is!

It is so unfortunate that when Godly wisdom, truth, diplomacy, love of God, others, and of Country is needed most in the World, the custodians of virtues- Religious Leaders had non handy. We seem to have gotten used to the rottenness all around and decency was far gone. Non existence!

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 4:17 He who knows what is good and right to do, and does not do it, to that person, it is a sin. SIN!!!!!!!!!

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Settled Plan! God’s Plan!

There are so much that God want for you, and much more that He desires from you. God want you to know He loves you even before the foundation of the earth was laid.

God made provision for you through His son Jesus Christ. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. He desires for you to believe and accept this love. It is real!

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 

Your loving Father has great plans for you as the above scripture stated. You however have to lean into God and His plan faithfully to be all you can be for your creator. Accept God’s love for you through Christ Jesus who died on the cross in your place. Open up your heart today, invite Jesus in as your Lord and Savior.

You will however be doing your self a favor by putting your faith into action – strategically invest in your own success.

God desires you to be proactive about His plan for your life. He is Sovereign and will fulfill the plan He has for you. Whatever dreams you have is attainable and fulfillable only in Christ Jesus! Yield your all! Embrace the love of God!

You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you – Philippians 4:13

Living The Word!

Souls are yearning for God, lost and disillusioned. You can make a difference only if Christ can be seen in you. This is why we must truly live the words we say!

James 1:22 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. 

This generation are smarter than the previous. They look to match what is said with what they can see you do. Action is said to speak louder than words.

Although the scriptures says go into all the world and preach the gospel – Mark 16:15-16, if what we do precede us, our words will not have the effect it ought to have. We must change this dynamics by living out the word!

Shalom!
